Are you a dog hugger? Think again

Yes, that's me. Guilty as charged. I am a hugger. Perhaps I am projecting a human emotion on my dog, but it brought me comfort. Then I saw this article.

Psychologist recommend against hugging your dog. I guess I had never seen this fear in my Kippers eyes, but its worth a discussion. How does your dog react to a hug?

Yes, most dogs hate hugs. Look at stress signs when you're hugging a dog. They will most likely show at least one.

I don't hug my dog because 1. He's tiny. Hugging him would be weird. and 2. He hates hugs.
